Quoted from Rob_G:
So why do some of you like the dotsxl as opposed to hires for example?
Plus where is the documentation for the menus/buttons?
I like them both, the hires is cool, and I appreciate the benefits and work that went into it. It's nice and bright, text is really clear.
But I just love the pixel art. The designers put so much heart and soul and detail into these little 128x32 pixel grids. It's so damn tiny, it's really an art to make it look awesome. And the thing that rocks so much about ColorDMD is all of a sudden these beautiful details, that were sometimes hidden in black and three shades of orange, are coming to life. And the dots are the truest representation of that art.
I don't need them to be something they're not, the original pixels are great. But the color just enhances them, as opposed to trying to hide things, or really change them. I feel like the dot artists must love seeing it, I would love to talk to someone who did dots on a 90s game and then gets to see them in color. They should be really proud of the work they did being shown in such detail for the first time.
